You change the world one heart at a time.Let me do just a moment with a couple of words in there. First, when I say heart, I mean in the biblical sense: the core of who you are, not the emotional and sentimental kind of heart. Second, when I say world, I don't mean all 6.3 billion people or geopolitical structures or economic systems. Some of those may indeed change, but the world I'm talking about is the world I live in: my home, my neighbors, my church, my circle. If you could digitize it, it'd be my contact list.
You change the world one heart at a time.The first heart that has to change in my world is mine. I have to be the one to deny myself and take up my cross daily and follow Jesus. I have to be the one to love my neighbor as myself. I have to be the one to discipline myself for the purpose of godliness. I have to be the one to spend time in prayer and listen to God's voice. I have to be the one to love my King and Father more than I love status, pleasure, or any other idol. I have to be the one who will live according to the Truth and not the lies. I have to be the one to live according to my position in Christ. I have to be the one to change.
My world changes when my heart changes.
But that's just me thinking thoughts...
